I love this product! I have dry dehydrated skin and I use it under my thicker moisturizer. All the humectants really help with dehydration in particular. It feels so nice on my skin. Really great addition!
I'm absolutely in love with everything Chemist Confessions. Having tried so many products on the market, I have never found any product line I like this much. I put it on before Mr. Reliable and my skin has never looked better.
I love how it is lightweight and not greasy but provides moisture. I will definitely be continuing using it in my routine along with Mr Reliable Moisturizer as well
I've been enjoying this as a AM/PM layer underneath my moisturizer. I feel like I have noticed an improvement in the "glow" of my skin. My skin is VERY dry and textured and soaks up products quite a bit. I've been using this for three weeks now and really like this. I'm not certain yet if I'll love it long term, but it's definitely promising.
I have very dry skin and was skeptical that this would work as my nighttime moisturizer on its own, but after a few lazy nights of doing exactly that I'm shocked by how hydrating this is for being such a lightweight moisturizer
